Strengths:    Smooth, Great adjustability, Light weight, it looks nice with Ti spring

Weaknesses:    Price

Bottom Line:   
Best shock so far. No experience with the CC one, but against DHX its awesome. For those who are looking for the best shock for their bike, with no money limit, its a great choice, you'll not regret.

Very nice shock. Buy one if you ever get the money. Forget the Ti spring tho unless your wanting to pay 700$ or whatever to save a few grams.

Bottom Line:   
this shock doesn't reduce pedal bob, it is the session 10's frame that brings the chain up to the pivot point on the swing arm, thus making it pedal like an xc bike. Don't be fooled thinking its the shock, its not. Take a close look at the session 10's front sprocket and you'll see the chain is next to the pivot joint.

Strengths:    ultra smooth, magical damping
very light (Ti coil)
unreal small bump and square-edge compliance
easy, effective, tool-free external adjustments


Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
far superior to the dhx and 5th element. haven't tried the roco or double barrel, but i'm blown away by this thing. you don't know how crappy the dhx is until you try a revox. manitou made garbage until now. this is simply amazing. a very worth upgrade.

Strengths:    everything is so good
Ti spring
ultra ultra smooth
looks beautiful


Weaknesses:    a you kidding me,this shock is amazing,it's the best there is

Bottom Line:   
this shock is the most awesome shock out there,the shock has 6 way's to adjust and the damping is unbeleavable way and way better then the dhx5.The shock preforms nothing but awesome and is so unbeleavable smooth,i love it.I'm lucky it came stock on my bike and delivers me 10 inches of travel with a 3.5 stroke.If you are looking for the ultimate rear shock in preformence look no further and buy a revox,it's the best shock you can get your'e hands on.

Strengths:    Light, and adjustable, probably the best coilshock out their... even over the Fox DHX.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
by far the best shock Manitou has ever made for FR/DH. A Massive improvement over the Manitou Swinger 6-way, (which was the biggest peace of crap out there!) I'm just glad Manitou finally got it right... and I'm glad to have it, couldn't ask for a better shock.

Date Reviewed: October 31, 2006

Strengths:    Pedals amaizingly well, looks beautifull, and has tons of adjustability.

Weaknesses:    None as of yet worth downgrading it for but the compression dampening when set to full min on both the high and low speed still feels a bit firm for what it should be at full min. Although it is still low enough you probably would never want it lower then those min setting anyway which is why its not really a problem.

Bottom Line:   
So I have never liked Manitou products and have even seen (working in a shop which sells manitou products) a decent number of failures in other products of theirs. I went to purchase the new Trek Session 10 and probably would have without even riding it switched it for a DHX 5.0 which i have riden many times before including on my old bike and loved. But for the moral of the story I am sure glad that no one else makes a shock big enough for that frame except for Manitou. This shock functions like nothing you've ever riden before. It function on a speed sensitive valve as they call it which may sound like a bit of crap because thats what they all say (including Fox) but man this thing damn near locks out on the smooth climbs. And yet as soon as you hit the first bump the shock opens up and lets you enjoy all its wonderfull travel. Not to mention its incredibly hot looking with a really nice in house Ti spring standard. And it has adjustable: high speed compression, low speed compression, bottom out resistance, inertia valve pressure, rebound, and preload. All of which are pretty easily accessable and really do there job. Bottom line is i would still never ride a 6 way swinger but i love my Revox and would recomend it to anyone over just about any other shock on the market including DHX 5!
